Question about Cars & Trucks
It should be possible to gain a rough idea of the problem from the tyre wear.
Choppy scalloped type wear suggests defective shocks or excessive wheel imbalance.
Wear of both shoulders or edges of a tyre or the centre of the tread indicates incorrect tyre pressures.
If both tyres are displaying a similar wear pattern on the same inside or outside shoulder indicates incorrect toe setting.
If one tyre has a shoulder that is wearing it indicates an incorrect camber angle.
If both tyres are wearing differently the problem is likely to be a combination.
The rear alignment of some cars is adjustable and slight misalignment can be corrected but often rectification comes down to replacing parts or even using a body jack to move mounting points.
I suggest you book your car in for a 4-wheel alignment check.

if it is just the rt front then you have a camber problem on this side.it can be shimmed if nothing is bent or worn. should be able to trake it to a alignment shop and they can shim while aligning

Be sure that the screws that hold the wheel are firmly an uniformly screwed. Check if on the both sides you've got the same problem.

Highlanders usually go between 15-25k miles before needing tire replacement.
One suggestion is to bump the air pressure in your tires up to 35PSI vs. the recommended 30PSI.
There seem to be others with the same problem, maybe you can check out the forum at this link for more information.
